New publication: Democracy, Political Literacy and Transformative Education: What issues and trends
We're pleased to present our latest publication, which is a part of Daniel Schugurensky's wonderful Participatory Democracy project at Arizona State University:
Carr, Paul R. & Thésée, Gina. (2017). Democracy, Political Literacy and Transformative Education: What issues and trends have emerged over the past ten years of this research project?. In Won, N., Brennan, A. & Schugurensky, D. (eds.), By the People: Participatory Democracy, Civic Engagement and Citizenship Education (pp. 250-264). Tempe, Arizona: Participatory Governance Initiative, Arizona State University.
Daniel's work has been an inspiration to us and the UNESCO Chair DCMÉT for a number of years, dating back to when he was a professor at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) and the University of Toronto in the late 1990s and 2000s (Daniel is a member of the Chair's International Advisory Committee). It was at Daniel's 2008 OISE conference on participatory democracy when Paul R. Carr and Gina Thésée met David Zyngier from Monash University in Australia, and the Global Doing Democracy Research Project was then conceived.
